According to the well-respected and much loved publication Overland Journal, Overlanding is self-reliant adventure travel to remote destinations where the journey is the primary goal. Typically, but not exclusively, accommodated by off-highway-capable transport (from bicycles to trucks) where the principal form of lodging is camping; lasting from one day to years. While expedition is defined as a journey with a purpose, overlanding sees the journey as the purpose.
At the BC Overland Rally, we bring together some of the overland world's top travellers, instructors, vendors, and a huge variety of individuals, couples, families and friends, who want to learn new skills, make contacts, meet friends, be inspired, win prizes, and have a great few days camping and chatting in the beautiful BC mountains close to Vancouver.
Our goals are simple: Have fun, make friends, learn stuff!
